I’ll be 32 at my wedding and I’m definitely wearing a veil! I don’t think you’re ever too old for a veil. 🙂

I’m not wearing a veil, but it’s not because I’m 32. However, I think any bride, any age can wear a veil! People say the stupidest and most inconsiderate things to brides. I swear!

I wore a single tier, waltz length veil, and I was 31 on our wedding day. I did not plan to wear a veil, but it really made me feel like a bride, and I don’t regret my decision one bit. 🙂

I’m 30 and I won’t be wearing one, but it’s not because I’m 30. I just don’t want to 😛

I don’t think age dictates whether or not you should wear a veil- that’s just silly! By that token, maybe we all shouldn’t be wearing white, since we’re all not virgins anymore? C’mon.

I’ll be 36 at the wedding and I’ll be wearing a veil. To me, tacky is a myth created by busybodies who can’t just let people have their own thing 🙂

I was also in my mid-30s and wore a veil.  In fact, I wore it around the house the next Christmas too (only for a little while when I found it – but it’s so pretty). 🙂

Traditionally Veils were for younger, first-time Brides (as were pure white dresses)

I honestly think that all those conventions have passed now for the most part.

My first wedding (circa 1980) and I wore a big white dress in the Victorian styling of the time, with a Hat that had a bit of a veil attached… kind of in a pouffy bow at the back.

My plan this time round…

Is to do things differently… intentionally.

So I am thinking a more colourful gown (Wedding Dress or not) and ya, maybe even a veil (somewhere between birdcage and figertip)

Weddings (especially encore ones) IMO have changed a lot… they are now meant to be a ton of fun… if a veil makes me happy and joyful, then it is pretty much ok to wear one.

So to answer YOUR Question… do what you please… veil traditions have most certainly changed.

Eh screw ’em.  I was 31 and I wore a veil.  I didn’t wear a blusher but only because that’s not my thing.  He knew what he was getting.  🙂 

In fact I wore my veil until about 4am.  I wore it all through the ceremony and reception, went to the hotel, showered and took down my updo, then put it back in and went to the club.  How else do you know who to give the free drinks to?

I am 30 and was at my wedding and didn’t wear a veil.  I felt ridiculous in them.  I never really tried on veils in my 20’s though, so no word on how I would have felt in them then.

I am 37 and just got married last month. I actually ended up not wearing a veil but not because I thought it was tacky, but because I couldn’t find one that I liked that would look good with my hair style and dress – I didn’t want it to overshadow my dress (which has a lot of detail in the back down the train.) 🙂 I ended up wearing a really beautiful pearl/crystal haircomb instead.

I agree with what one of the posters said above, age should not dictate your decision. You are a bride, you should wear or now wear whatever makes you happy and makes you feel beautiful on your wedding day. 🙂
